I had my first injection today and almost fainted! It didn't hurt that much but the whole thought of it has made me sick all day. There is pain in my knee but I am willing to wait it out. Two more injections and I'm trying to figure out how NOT to faint when I get the other two....hope it works!

I have been getting these injections for about 3 years now and I love them!!!

I would recommend this to anyone who has severe knee pain. I can enjoy outdoor activities with my family again. :O)
